'The Broker Bodega' Imagines Sleazy NYC Real Estate Brokers Running Your Local Bodega (IMAGES)

Dan Brill I The Broker Bodega

The Broker Bodega hits close to home for any New Yorker who has braved the recesses of Craigslist while searching for a new apartment. This hilarious Tumblr, run by Dan Brill, an advertising copywriter at Droga5, creates fake ads for bodega items, written in the tone of a sleazy real estate broker. A beef and bean burrito is a "24 OZ. MEXICAN MASTERPIECE WITH PRE-WAR PRESERVATIVES." And for only $2,900!

In an interview with Business Insider, Brill said that he came up with the idea for the Tumblr during his own apartment search and was struck by the ridiculous ads urging potential renters to move fast or lose out. "It's kind of entertaining looking at those ads," Brill said. "It's this weird brand of absurdist humor. It's amazing what the brokers come up with."
